Amiga In An FPGA

I have been a commodore fanboy since I got my first Commodore 64 computer back in the early 80’s. Started with the 64, then the 128, Plus/4 and finally an A1200.

Unfortunately tragedy has struck my beloved Amiga 1200 – it not longer functions properly. One day it just started giving “out of memory” errors and I have been unable to remedy the problem. Part of the reason I can’t repair my system is the custom chips, which are the heart of the Amiga, haven’t been made for over 25 years and have become unobtainable. Luckily for us, some very dedicated and passionate Amiga fans have saved the Amiga experience via software emulation and hardware recreation within an FPGA.

What I would like to do is recreate the FPGA implementation and place it into an actual Amiga case to give it an authentic feel.

Follow along as I start yet another project that might not see the light of day.
